Review: A key member of the Mullet contingent, Elijah Collins has quite regularly stolen the show on many a release via his beefy electro-house remixes. Here we get a whole EP of his and he's in a particularly frisky mood! "Shake Dat" is a sleazy hip-houser built around a nasty, stripper-friendly bassline that certainly gets our dollars in it's thong! There's also an extended instrumental version that's a totally awesome jack-fest!

Review: Haircut-fanciers Mullet must be the busiest digital label on the nu-disco scene, releasing a single nearly every week. This two-tracker from Elijah Collins & NIST is one of Mullet's finest to date. "Love's Down" is a particular treat, foregoing the usual Mullet cod-80s synths for some original electro-boogie flava, teasing vocal snippets and sweet 80s soul flourishes. If the sound of famed 80s R&B label Solar System floats your boat, check it. "Shakedown", meanwhile, goes even further towards 80s soul, offering a clattering fusion of slo-mo P-funk and cheeky electrofunk.

Review: This two-tracker from the previously unknown Elijah Collins and J-Tee is something of a departure for the usually synth disco inclined Mullet stable. "J-Funk" is effectively a re-edit, although one sliced and diced in the now familiar disco/house style. The original track undergoing routine (scalpel) maintenance is Tom Browne's break-diggin' favourite "Funkin' For Jamaica". While it barely needed a rework, Collins and J-Tee's version is expertly teased and twisted, leading to an excellent drop and veritable explosion of groovery. "Holy Smokes", meanwhile, superbly re-jigs Rick James' P-funk jam "Cold Blooded", turning it into an elastic electrofunk/house hybrid. Like the A, it's simple but very, very effective.

Review: "I know he used to do shit for you, but what has he done for you lately?" So asks a lone sampled voice at the beginning of "What Up Girl?", offering a cute warning of what's to come. You see, this newie from Mullet regulars Elijah Collins and Nist is heavily based around Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done For Me Lately?", one of Jam & Lewis's best productions. Collins and Nist's version beefs up the bottom end, making great use of the backing vocals and, later, hooky melodies. Sound wise, it's an electrofunk/loopy house blend, making it more suitable for contemporary dancefloors.

Review: Something seems to have irritated the lads and lasses at Mullet HQ. Like a Glaswegian drunk fuelled by Buckfast and Tenant's Super, they've taken to staggering around, pointing a blackened finger at passer's by and screaming obscenities! Or, at least producers Elijah Collins and Tee J have, as they offer up a decidedly aggressive lead cut that sounds like dirty P-funk for manic depressives (although, we can assure you, it's a bit more fun than that). "I Used To Feel Alright", meanwhile, re-edits a live version of a well-known Marvin Gaye space disco fave.

Review: Ruben & Ra welcome the combined talents of Slow It Down and Elijah Collins (last seen cutting up old disco hits on Mullet) for an EP of thickset electrofunk-meets-house floorfillers. Lead cut "Alright" sets the tone, coming on like a knowing homage to the pioneering boogie-sampling loop-house of Tiger & Woods. "I Don't Need", seemingly a re-cut of an old Jam & Lewis production, breaks up the beats impressively, while "Tramadol Boogie" loops up some particularly rubbery p-funk grooves. There are two reworks of the title track to sink your teeth into, too. Of these, it's Collins' own Elijah Dub that most impresses, rising and falling with all the glee of an MDMA-fuelled night out.
